This blog is the result of my obsession with the natural world. I started off sharing the stories of my birdwatching adventures around Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula. The more I adventured, the more I fell in love with.I became fascinated by bugs. I started wanting to identify lichen and sundew. My love of nature became an obsession.
It became so big that I eventually created separate blogs around each obsession. This allows me to dive into what makes a species or an area special and share related resources.
Birdwatching Around Geelong
I love birdwatching. This was the gateway into all my other nature obsessions. There is a strong focus on places around Geelong that are accessible by public transport.
Exploring The Shallows
I fell in love with marine life by exploring the rockpools around Apollo Bay. I started by photographing the animals that were easy to discover. Now I seek to discover new creatures and document interesting behaviour.
Bugs, Bugs And More Bugs
Terrestrial invertebrates are fascinating.
I quickly realized that I would have to understand the plant life in order to find a lot of the animals that interested me. I have a particular obsession with moss, fungi and lichen.
The Anxious Hiker
I love hiking – but I also have a severe anxiety disorder! Here I document my hiking adventures as I recover from my latest mental health relapse.
In December, 2015, my parents bush block was destroyed in the Scotsburn fire. I’ve been documenting how the flora and fauna have been recovering.
A growing hobby. Very few posts, but I am hoping to go on specific trips to look for mammals.
